I’ve been thinking about taking the teardrops off my car and installing beehives because my CMC replica is registered as a ‘56 and the rear license plate light is a ‘56.
I don’t know what body or paint work will be needed if I do that though. Also where do you get the beehives. Are most  beehives now installed OEM or are they repops?36A3E035-A840-4830-99E2-AE028FAA9C7EAll the lenses on my speedster, front and rear, are OEM now.

@IndianBob If I remember correctly, the bee-hives and shine-down license light carried over into mid-57 before switching over to teardrop and shine-up license light.

Like @jncspyder mentioned, switching to bee-hives and shine-down license-light is not worth the work involved. If you're looking for an easy project switch to Euro lenses (Amber/Red).

Yes. And it's also worth noting that BITD the "model year" ran Sept-August so many changes happened in June/July.
